The Kerry Way UltraLite - Saturday, Sept 3rd 2022

This event will be held over The Kerry Way route from Sneem to Killarney, starting at Sneem at 9am on Saturday and finishing in The Killarney Racecourse before 10pm. The Start will be at the Sneem Community Centre and the Finish will be at The Killarney Racecourse. Registration will be at The Killarney Racecourse on Friday evening from 6.30pm. Registration will be alphabetically allocated, ie. you will be given a time to register.

There will be a transfer from Killarney to Sneem on Saturday morning, approx. 7.15am from The Killarney Racecourse, approx. cost €15.

This is a slightly shorter version of The Kerry Way Ultra, approx 58k, and will be run concurrently with the longer event. The UltraLite will be along the same lines as The Ultra – live tracking, self-sufficient with Crew Stops and Bag Drops at Templenoe and Kenmare, emergency water only provided by the committee, no prize money but Participants Awards and No Trace Race principles applied. There will be a Mandatory Gear Check – waterproof jacket and trousers, hat, gloves, fully charged mobile phone (not on Airplane Mode), map or GPS of the route, spare food and water, survival (bivy, foil) bag and First Aid Kit. Gear Check will be before Registration and you will not be let register if you do not have all of the above, and there will be no sharing gear!!!

Race Information - approx. 58k in length, starting in Sneem and finishing in Killarney. There is a cut-off time of 4pm in Kenmare and this is strictly enforced. Check The Kerry Way Ultra Race Info page for details of Crew Stops, Mandatory Gear List and other general information.

This event is due to a huge demand for a shorter version of The Kerry Way Ultra and is only possible thanks to the involvement of the local landowners, South Kerry Development Partnership and the Sneem Community!

As usual, contact Eileen on (087) 2731489 if you need details, information or encouragement. There will be details here about accommodation shortly. If you are not local, I would recommend that you stay in Sneem on Friday night. Bring the family!
